We have a Workflow that is being replaced by a new one. All documents in the Client with the existing workflow applied need to change over to the new WF based on a specific state. I wanted to automatic the change to a new Workflow and its corresponding state. Is there a way to achieve this?
When the existing WF is 'effective' (pdf) as soon as the permitted user applies a 'new revision' a script creates a new document and using a copy from the effective version (prior to the pdf conversion) and sets the state to 'draft'.
Once the document is in draft at this point I wanted to change the workflow over to the new one and apply the new state as we have thousands of documents this will apply to.
I have tried to use Hierarchy Manager but it doesn't seem to work so my only other thought was the possibility of updating the script to changing the WF but not sure if this would work.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
